Quoted from Methos:

Looking for a Dirty Harry or Roadshow if anyone has one they are thinking to move. Have a few projects laying around to include in a possible trade.

I have a nice DH (personal game, not the one on route, but that one could be a possible option; also a nice example). Reach out with your trades if you want to discuss.

#15352 10 months ago

I have a HUO first owner Jurassic Park Premium (build date June 2020), with around or less than 100 plays (i will get audits and pics for an ad later today) with the only mod being an added shaker motor. Interested in trading for/towards a Medieval Madness. Posting here first to see if there is local interest.

Someone near me on next door is looking for someone to repair their shuffle bowler. Does anyone know who does house calls for EM's in southern WI (near Elkhorn)? I have a lot of machines, but not a lot of experience fixing EM's. Thanks!

#15363 10 months ago

Thinking about offering my Batman 66 premium as trade bait for an Avengers IQ Prem/LE or maybe a Deadpool (mostly Prem/LE but might consider pro). Not looking for a straight sale yet, just seeing if it would shake the right machine loose. Will likely post a full ad in the next day or so. HUO first owner, low plays, Stern LE sideblades, a few other minor mods. Let me know if interested.

Quoted from CaptainNeo:

you still didn't get a deadpool?

I had a pro for awhile. Long story short I sold it with the intent of upgrading to a premium right away and those plans fell through. I'm probably leaning more towards an AIQ right now, but if the right DP deal came along I could be talked into it.

#15369 10 months ago

I live just outside it Doug, in the Lauderdale Lakes area. I see in your info that you live over here too. When I first moved here from Madison right before covid hit, Cory was going to invite ourselves to your house to play some games Didn't realize we were that close, assumed you lived closer to him. I met you once at a party at his house, but its been a few years now.

I gave him Paul's info and told him if he couldn't help him, let me know. I can always poke my head over and see if its something simple.

Ugh...I missed the press conference, did he provide any justification for why certain things got to open (gyms from what I understand) and others have to remain closed?

Quoted from setzkor:

Some places did a better job at not spreading it.

I recall a Facebook post that said at one barcade as long as you had a drink in your hand you didn't need a mask.

And that to me is a problem. Some people and places trying hard to slow it down. And some not.

#15377 10 months ago

Well since this stupid situation has me using my pinball room as my office/conference room, I don't really even like being down there. I was hoping to get somewhere else to play that doesn't have the stink of work surrounding it.

I guess I'll have to wait for Walz to say it's ok first though.

#15378 10 months ago

Came across two scams this week.
Wrote about them here.

#15380 10 months ago

I was looking for his post too!

#15381 10 months ago
Quoted from ruralcollector:

I was looking for his post too!

I can see it but it say last post was 60
Days ago, so perhaps it has to be validated.

Here’s my stories from this week.

I became aware of a fellow pinsider who got scammed on MMRE. Smooth talking scammer, knew his stuff. Guy wired $.
Some tips:
Background check buyers and reverse search phone numbers.
Check routing numbers for bank location, etc.
Get references from known reputable pinsiders.
Avoid Facebook. This one originated there.
Perhaps use fellow pinsiders to verify that a game exists, and inspect.
Check photos against pinside listings.
FaceTime and check and inspect the game.
Read this thread from top to bottom as well as VIDs thread on how to not get scammed.
I feel really badly for the buyer.
If it’s too good to be true, it’s fake.
On another note, I avoided a moving company shipping scam from a Batman Forever listed for free out of Billings. You know, it’s on a truck and I’ll put you in touch with the moving company. I called the real moving company, and the guy said “I don’t know nothin about no pinball, but I’ve had 4 calls about it.” The scammer used an area code and number similar to the real moving co, sent a bad looking invoice, and offered to ship the game to me for $245 With 60% down. I finally said I’ll have sti pick it up from your warehouse, and got ghosted of course.
Folks, be smart, be safe, and good luck to you all.

Anyone got a Munsters Pro they would like to get rid of cheaply, but immediately?

#15383 10 months ago

Just watched the zeppelin game play videos.
I have to say, the game looks “weak”; very disappointed; what a waste of a good theme.
So which of you zeppelin fans wants a real game, like a TZ or a WH20, almost 30 years old, still runs like a charm, loaded with awesome and over the top toys (all models are LEs), and the playfield, components, artwork, and game play are superb?
I predict huge supply on Zep, so don’t waste your $ on pre-order, just grab a like new when the dumping season begins. With this said, it won’t be the first time I’ve been wrong.

Quoted from Whysnow:

If any of you use alt accounts; shame on you. That’s dirty pool; negotiate like men for crying out loud.
No, I’m not sure what happened (I can see it, but others can’t. Weird)’

#15385 10 months ago

Along the theme of scams......

For those of you more seasoned at selling machines, is selling on Craigslist always a total $hitshow?

I listed my machine on CL and I got a lot of interest.......from bots and weirdos. At least one legit inquiry.

I’m leaning towards just selling everything on here in the future even if I have to take a hit in price just to avoid the aggravation.

I was a Craigslist guy on other sales, just to many tire kickers and people looking for friends. FB is getting bad too but you can look at buyers profiles before you even respond.

Last 4 pins I've sold were from here. unless you are asking retail everyone on Pinside that I have talked to or sold to has been awesome. zero issues. All other sites for pinball sales are a dice roll.

You get what you pay for on CL.

It's not bad. You'll find someone to buy your game at a decent price. You'll find someone looking for a good deal too.

#15391 10 months ago

Not pinball related but I am giving it one last shot. My folks have a "smart ball" brand skee ball machine from the early 90s. The boards need some work as the game frequently restarts...hoping to find someone that has the ability to test and repair the boards any info or leads will be very much apprediated! Thanks

I saw that ad for a Hardbody for $300 on FB marketplace, but looking at the seller's profile set off too many red flags.

Better prices on sell-side on pinside, way less aggravation, like others say. Plus, some level of verification, and feedback, and reference source material. I’ve received many references calls/pms from Pinsiders vetting other pinsiders. It’s nice to be able to help and reward the good guys.

Will do. But I have to say, compared to Acdc premium, Metallica, or IMDN, just the build quality and toys, look, aesthetics, everything looks trivial. Plus there’s better album covers and artwork to use on the game. The White cab looks like a faded Simpsons. The icuarus toy made me laugh out loud. The whole deal looks rushed.
Give me kick ass fun ramps (white water), give me cool toys pop up characters, drop targets revealing tunnels, ramps to launch balls (NGG), mini playfields, magnets (TZ), cranked, a blimp that shakes and explodes, a tv to show video, a better music selector, etc. I’m just totally unimpressed; frankly, I’m disappointed.

I have to agree with Brobra. Zep is underwhelming and a disappointment. It just seems like Stern mailed it in, which they know they can because these days people will buy pretty much anything. It’s easy to try to convince yourself that it is better than it is. I think that’s natural. However, it really falls short in most categories - art, toys, lack of original lay out, etc. Of course, the music will be good and the code is an open question. Even if the code is great, I don’t think that’s what should make a pin great by itself. Code is very important, but it’s a cheap way to try to hide other deficiencies in the pin.
